The best gaming pc 2014 build is a system that offers you the performance you need for your favorite games at a price point that works with your budget. You can even use these systems to do work or watch movies and TV shows. These computers are also good for high-resolution gaming and tethered virtual reality (Valve Index or HTC Vive).
This month's $600 gaming pc builds are packed with power at an affordable price. The new AMD FX 6300 cpu is more than capable of handling modern games at medium settings or higher at an acceptable frame rate, while the EVGA GTX 1070 is powerful enough for any game released before 2015.
The $1000 gaming pc build is a powerful system that can easily handle current and past titles at high settings while remaining stable. This system uses the latest Intel Core i5 processor and a RX 7900 XTX graphics card, which can drive up to four 4K monitors. A high-end 280mm ARCTIC AIO CPU cooler is included with the system, along with a Corsair Carbide Air 240 micro ATX case and a Corsair 850W Gold power supply.
The productivity build stays pretty similar to the previous month, with a 13700k and the same Radeon 4090. Both systems get a quality 240mm AIO cooler and a nice gaming case, and the gaming build gets RGB RAM. The PSU was bumped to the 600W Corsair Builder series power supply, which is still a very cost conscious choice for this build.
